"As You Cry" as written by and Robert Samuel Morris....
I'm a halfhearted fool with a heart that's broke in two
A quarter and a kiss is all I should be worth to you
I must be the last of my kind, 'cause you treasure me despite all the signs
But love is disappearing, and darlin', you shouldn't even try

After every fight, we always wonder what we're fighting for
Mint me up and mark me, yeah, you stole me but I am not yours

As you cry, I wanna lie say, "i love you so"
Darlin' even though I don't
There's no easy way to ease the pain
Woah, roses and the tulips have withered away
They had their day
So it's time to say goodnight and goodbye

You're so bright that you shine right through
All the problems that I always try to lay on you
Won't you take me off trial, and won't you get some air in this room?
I can't believe in what I cannot hold inside of my hand
Won't let nobody in who might decide to mess up the plan
I'd be a liar if I told you that we would work out

After every fight, we always wonder what we're fighting for
Mint me up and mark me, yeah, you stole me but I am not yours

As you cry, I wanna lie say, "i love you so"
Darlin' even though I don't
There's no easy way to ease the pain
Woah, roses and the tulips have withered away
They had their day
And so it's time to say goodnight and goodbye

Nobody's singing about you anymore
You thought you heard it well, you must have heard wrong
It's my business and that's alright
Don't you see that?

As you cry, I wanna lie say, "i love you so"
Darlin' even though I don't
There's no easy way to ease the pain
Woah, the roses and the tulips have withered away
They had their day
And so it's time to say goodnight and goodbye
Goodbye

    General CommentPretty much every song on this CD is about this, Not Your Concern keeps up the same theme. The album is called "Goodbye Blues" for gods sake.

    General Comment*You're so bright
    That you shine right through
    All the problems that I always
    Try and lay on you
    Won't you take me off,darling, and get some air in this room

    I can't believe in what I cannot hold inside of my hand
    won't let nobody in who might decide to mess up the plan
    I'd be a liar if I told you that we would work out

    The roses and the tuplis have withered away.
    They had their day, and so it's time to say goodnight and goodbye.

    General CommentReally ridiculously catchy.
    When I heard the first live recording I was horrified, because the idea of the song in and of itself is a little cliched. But the lyrics are inspired, really interesting. Yay.
